WAGE AND OVERTIME

In California, workers should be paid overtime for working more than eight hours a day, more than forty hours in a week, or for working the seventh day in a row.  Employers avoid paying you all of your wages by altering time cards, making you work “off the clock,” denying meal and rest breaks,

RETALIATION

An employer cannot fire you for making an overtime complaint.  An employer who does so is in violation of labor rules against retaliation, and such an employer is subject to further fines and damages.

MISCLASSIFICATION

Many employers will illegally classify their employees as Independent Contractors or as exempt from overtime pay. The Key Factor justifying overtime exemption is your daily tasks.  Job Descriptions, Resumes, and Job Titles will not protect employers who misclassify workers. You may be entitled to all your missed overtime pay and penalties if you were not paid what you were owed.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

Sexual harassment can come in many forms, but no matter what it can be very traumatic and degrading.  Your employer has a duty to provide you with a harassment-free environment, and a duty to teach managers and workers to behave properly.

WRONGFUL TERMINATION

In general, an employer has a right to fire an employee for any reason.  But, an employer cannot fire an employee for an improper purpose.  A worker can be fired because their boss “doesn’t like” them, but a worker cannot be fired for being older, for being a woman, because of their race, because of their religion, because of their sexual orientation, or for trying to assert their rights or report wrongdoing.

​GET INSPIRED, PREPARE TO FIGHT!

Actions against employers can move very slowly and can be filled with many difficulties. Companies have many resources and they will work hard to protect themselves. Even with a good attorney, the struggle can be long and difficult. You will need to stay strong and fight hard.
